Christmas 2015

Christmas 2015

I’m writing this from my parent’s dining table in Brisbane.

It’s Friday 25 December 2015. It’s Christmas Day.

Merry Christmas πŸ˜ƒπŸŽπŸŽ…πŸŽ„β­πŸŒŸπŸ––

My flight from Canberra to Brisbane departed shortly after 9 am. I enjoyed meeting some friends at the airport before boarding which was great.

My flight was uneventful and smooth. I was surprised how full the flight was. I managed to get an aisle seat with no one next to me so that was a plus.

The Brisbane roads were pretty barren so the journey to my parent’s place was very quick.

It was good to see Mum and Dad. It’s been a few months since I last visited. I’ve been busy with work and trying to save a little money.

As soon as I arrived mum had me preparing coleslaw. I made it with a special surprise. I added some fried shallots and crushed Queensland nuts (Macadamia). Mum had two chickens (chooks) in the oven full of her stuffing which I love. Mum made a green salad with hard boiled eggs, mango and avocado. We also had smashed potatoes (spuds). Dr48 (my middle brother) was due to arrive with roast pork and crackling, chicken wings, Moreton Bay bugs, Endeavour prawns and a lobster. Mum made a seafood sauce to go with all the seafood. Dr48’s wife (SIL) brought along a pavlova (you know that Australian invention that people from New Zealand claim they invented).

I feel so full. I had three plates of lunch followed by a big slice of pavlova with ice cream.

It’s been a good day. It was good seeing my brothers. It was good seeing Mum and Dad.

I feel so full. I’m not having any dinner. I think if I tried eating more I’d make myself feel sick.

I hope you had a great Christmas Day.

Tell me what did you eat for Christmas 2015?

  1. That plate looks so colorful tropical yummy delicious! I have to do Christmas dinner the yummy lummy way someday! πŸ˜€
    I know about the Pavlova but haven’t had one….yet! πŸ™‚ Someday I hope! I mean if the Master Chef kids can do it, I could try to make it someday! hahahaha πŸ˜›

    Our dinner was simple but tasty. We had roast pork leg that pretty much melted in your mouth! A mushroom cranberry gravy-sauce. Mashed potatoes and roasted carrots and broccoli. Fruit cake for dessert. Like I said, simple but it sure left my taste buds happy.

    Merry Christmas once again!

    1. Thank you Jennifer. It was pretty special. It was nice catching up with my parents and brothers. I hope you had a good Christmas day too πŸŽ…πŸ˜ƒ

  2. My husband and I just got back from celebrating Christmas with our family. It sounds like we all ate well while enjoying the holiday with our families. Wishing you all the best in the coming new year, Gary.
